Action Research Presentation


How is academic language different from general language? How might this be taught and assessed? In this interactive and hands-on workshop, we will explore some principles to keep in mind in order to develop and implement effective assessments for academic purposes. We will think about the core ideas behind academic purposes language instruction, the different purposes and contexts of language assessment, and the different methods and forms that assessment and tests might therefore take. We will also look at some online resources that teachers might draw upon for their teaching.
